Contact dermatitis?

Well, this peeling of my fingertips continue. It feels like the entire thumb pad has died- like an orange skin that has rotted, and hardened into leather. No itching, no burning, just terrible throbbing pain. At my wits end. #Dermatitis #CyclicNeutropenia #Fibromyalgia

My Sensitive Skin Friends, I Need Your Advice!

I've been struggling with acne and extraordinarily dry and sensitive skin for as long as I can remember. I feel like I've tried every treatment, cream, and dermatologist's suggestion in the book, but nothing has made me feel confident in my skin. As I'm sure all too many of you know firsthand, having EDS can make our skin pretty difficult to deal with. I'm tired of the trial and error, only to have allergic reactions and rashes appear due to an ingredient in a product (I'm looking at you, hyaluronic acid).

So, my stretchy and sensitive-skinned friends, I'm turning to you:

✨What is your favorite way to care for your skin?

✨What routines and products have worked for you?

I'm looking forward to reading your suggestions!

Fibromyalgia pain

This morning the Fibro pain has again reared its ugly head- I hate when it starts my day,instead of ending my day( tho that's not nice to be hurting at bedtime,either!). Guess it's the below freezing temperature that's got it going. Don't you( those with fibro) just hate it when the fibro takes over even Before the day starts? It over comes the arthritis,the swollen feet & lower legs,the fitful sleep from the nite,and tired mind from having to deal with it & everything else on a daily basis. Even the pretty sunrise this morning gets hit. Big Sigh. Oh well,such is life when you are used to hurting All Over from an Invisible Disease. #Fibromyalgia ,#RA ,#oa ,#PTSD ,#GAD ,#Bipolar 2,#GERD ,#Insomnia ,#high Blood Pressure,#Allergies to most Everything,#sinusitis chronic,#Teeth problems( likely from meds been on for so long, dentist),#"covering" how I really am feeling,#bad dreams that carry over into the day,#restlessness ,#So many Meds,#dry Eye Syndrome,#Dermatitis -chronic,#Headaches ,Short term memory loss left over from ECT treatments,#Fibro Brain Fog,#sad ,#Overeating when illnesses take over too much,##Poor Self-Image,#Stagnant motivation,#chronic Talking to Myself-even Out Loud,#Talking & writing too much,#worry ,#Thinking of others instead of me,#people Pleaser,#Procrastination ,#Poor money management,#Ignoring important signs & Symptoms.

Healthy coping mechanisms to manage #Trichotillomania and #Dermatillomania ?

Trichotillomania and Dermatillomania have been a part of my life for at least 7 years now. Being diagnosed with Folliculitis only complicated things. I'm obsessed with my pores to the point that I pick for hours at a time. No part of my body goes untouched. Sometimes I have no idea that I'm doing it. Help!
